Community. Collaboration. Competition. Each semester, Nossi College of Art students gather for the Senior Portfolio Show and Semester Award Ceremony to support each other’s achievements while competing to take home an award for achievement.
All of our 2016 Spring Semester Seniors showed off their portfolio of work to friends, family and potential employers. After the Open House and Senior Show, the Nossi community of students, faculty and staff gather in our large photography studio to announce the semester award winners.
